Stay current with all the roster movement and personnel decisions with the TigsTown Transaction Blog. Steven Moya returns to the disabled list after an arm injury suffered a couple of days ago, while Luis Marte has been placed on the disabled list, and Jose Valverde will take his spot officially (but won't join Toledo just yet).


Placed Steven Moya (OF) on 7-day disabled list (arm)

Transferred Zach Kirksey (OF) from extended spring training to Lakeland

Placed Luis Marte (RHP) on 7-day disabled list (shoulder)

Transferred Jose Valverde (RHP) from extended spring training to Toledo


The news about Moya is very concerning, as the organization is being very quiet after had to be lifted from a game after taking a hard fall in the outfield. Zach Kirksey will take his spot, but for a player that missed much of last season with an elbow injury, concern about Moya is warranted.

Meanwhile, Marte’s shoulder issue (just a sore shoulder, for now), opens up the roster spot for Valverde, however, he won’t immediately join the Mud Hens. After a side session on Wednesday, Valverde is scheduled to throw in an extended spring training game on Friday.
